The inspiration for the collection: Waves?
I have a question mark after “waves” because Karl Lagerfeld gives little insight into what exactly his inspiration are for the many collections he designs each season. Prior to the show’s start, Lagerfeld said, “Voltaire said, ‘What needs an explaination is not worth explaining.”
Nonetheless, my interpretation of this collection is protection from the element of water. Thigh high boots, high necklines adorned with ruffles, and yoked blouses and dresses. Of course, the most impressive pieces from this collection (besides the furs), are the SHOES!!
Every aspect of the collection embodies parts of fantasy. The whimsical makeup, bold lip colors, mix & match prints, multi-colored furs, and the embroidery on the outerwear is to die for. Stripes on blouses and sunglasses (see above), and the bulky furs in the slideshow below will be everywhere this fall and next spring. Wherever Lagerfeld drew his inspiration from for this collection is a fantastical dream world, where I want to be.
